Senator from Crimea is confident that the peninsula is reliably protected from long-range ATACMS missiles

Ukraine (bbabo.net), - Washington, which is losing the military-economic and political confrontation with Moscow, is making another mistake in trying to put pressure on Russia with statements about the possible supply of long-range ATACMS missiles to Ukraine. This was stated today, January 23, by TASS member of the Federation Council from Crimea Olga Kovitidi, commenting on calls made in the US Congress for the introduction of new weapons to Kyiv.

“The United States is obviously losing the military-economic and political confrontation with Russia. The mistake of American unfortunate strategists is that you can’t put pressure on Russia, you can only negotiate with us, ”the senator noted.

She suggested that such statements in Washington have become more frequent due to the approach of the election campaign, and expressed confidence that the Crimean peninsula is also reliably protected from such types of weapons.

ATACMS missiles, with a range of more than 300 km, were not included in the next package of US military assistance to Ukraine, announced last week. Michael McCall (Republican), Chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee of the US House of Representatives, called this decision of the administration of President Joe Biden cowardly.

Deputy Foreign Minister of Russia Sergei Ryabkov regarded such statements as "an element of psychological warfare" and warned that the escalation of the situation around Ukraine is a "most dangerous path" with unpredictable consequences.
